[Nettime-bold] MAGIKA ROMA (OUT NOW!)


The “mutant mixed fried” is back: to illustrate his alien origins, they
admonish. Folk and world music, roman electronic, yellow-red and
chauvinist, paganeoist. Philosophy of musical action, natural and
"magik", politically eversive, introduced by the tribute to the  “divine

Totti Gň” (Recycle) and followed by a series of exact identity
vindications, lucid and ludic: from the myth of Orfeo (Luigi Tecno),
transporting Bahia odours and citing the visionary and bohemien madness
of  Dino Campana, to Giordano Bruno, Simon Magus, James Frazer, Luther
Blisset, the roman police inspector "Monnezza" and Ninetto Davoli.
Romanity and alien virus, a disc that is much more than an example,
however succeeded, of modern folklore: completely out of clichés,
musical political and cultural, consolatory provincial and
pseudo-intellectual. It's a "political" album but without the unbearable

rhetoric, serious and  reactionary of our left. It's an album of
unbiased and ironical illumination. The re-calls to Stockhausen,
Campana, to magik, nature and the ancient calendar established by
Romolus; to Giordano Bruno "l’Apostata", to the heretik Simon Magus,
David Hume, Orpheus, Bacchus and to sex (and she-wolf, in latin, means
also prostitute) are signs and tradition of a different point of view,
and so alien, then re-elaborated and showed by every artist involved
according his own manner and inspiration, but always in a chaotically
coherent way. From the nů-house tones of Iwo Jima to the Rodion and
Entartetekunst techno, the sufi mystik of Tez, the cut-n-paste of
Recycle and Mir, or like the Cloaca maxima of Margoo. Beautiful is the
grapic of the booklet and the digipak is kicking too. A great record, in

substance: and the aliens are among us, let me say, thanks to God....

The new chapter of Aliens In Roma never ending saga clamorously unveils
the "alien" origins of the people son of the "She-Wolf", mother of all
romans, presenting, in a "paganeoist" style, old and new adepts of the
magik-roman kult.

>From the divine "Totti Gň" (the most popular football hero of Rome) to
the mythik "She-Wolf", passing through the red planet, the little magik
alien wolves in Roma invite all the (in)human people on planet Earth to
re-discover the ancient kalendar established by Romulus (the Great) 2
"magikally" step the sense of time, in total symbiosis with the sacre
natural "mysteries", together with all his magikal auspices rites that
made immortal the pagan soul of the "eternal city"...
